Italian media are now so confident Antonio Conte has agreed to take over from Luciano Spalletti at Inter that it’s considered a done deal.
Multiple sources, from Sky Sport Italia to La Gazzetta dello Sport to La Repubblica and Sportitalia, all carry the same details of the agreement.
It’s at least a three-year contract, possibly more, worth €10m per season.
Even if Inter do not qualify for the Champions League, Conte is still going to keep his pledge to take the job.
It means this weekend’s Serie A match with Empoli at San Siro will be Spalletti’s last on the Nerazzurri bench.
Conte had also been linked with a return to Juventus following Max Allegri’s departure, but all reliable sources now point to Inter and no other option.
